I let my daughter brush her own teeth while I brush mine, then I will help her finish and let her help me finish. She feels like a big girl for helping mommy brush her teeth and I get to make sure her teeth are clean.

I bought my son an electric toothbrush and now he actually ASKS to brush his teeth and prefers for me to do it.

take turns brushing...or you do it first and let him do it after. No negotiating! He has to have his teeth brushed and you are the boss!

Brush together. my daughter stands on a step stool next to me and we brush and when we are done she lets me help her get a good once over, but the big thing is looking in the mirror and seeing what your doing and what hes donig.
